A Message From Our Board President
Scott Hoffmann, Esq.,
Rimini Street, Inc.
I am extremely excited and honored to begin my term as Washoe Legal Services’ Board President in 2019. Our Board is comprised of an esteemed group of accomplished individuals who bring a diverse range of skills and experience to our organization. This continues to be an exciting time for Washoe Legal Services. In 2019 we plan to launch our first ever Capital Campaign in order to renovate our building to better serve our clients, retire our building debt, and expand our programs and services to maximize access to justice to all members of our community. We also plan to advance our Medical-Legal Partnership with Northern Nevada HOPES and work with other organizations throughout our region to explore similar strategic partnerships. We will continue our never-ending pursuit of working to tirelessly serve the unmet legal needs in our rapidly-evolving community, expanding our self-help and senior law programs, and enhancing the community’s awareness of Washoe Legal Services as a leading 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our mission is strong and focused. My goal as President of Washoe Legal Services is to keep the organization loyal to its mission, implement the Board’s Strategic Plan, and continue to provide Northern Nevada’s vulnerable populations access to justice, regardless of their ability to pay, to protect their rights, safety, and family stability. Thank you for your part in making our vision a reality.
